Team Spelthorne is looking for young people aged 7-16 to participate in the annual P&G Surrey Youth Games. The P&G Surrey Youth Games is the largest annual youth festival with over 2000 young people experiencing a competitive, countywide sporting event.
The event is a great opportunity to try a new sport or improve existing skills.
The coaching sessions take place from April and there are fourteen sports on offer including hockey, cricket, judo, football, lacrosse, table tennis and boccia. Thanks to sponsorship from local organisations, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Everyone Active and Shepperton Studios, Spelthorne Council is offering the coaching sessions free of charge. Participants will then be selected from the coaching sessions to represent Team Spelthorne at the Games on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June 2016 at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford.
Cllr Jean Pinkerton OBE, Cabinet Member for Housing, Health, Wellbeing, Independent Living and Leisure said: “The Surrey Youth Games offers a fantastic opportunity for young people to experience different sports and make new friends. We hope Spelthorne can reach record breaking numbers participating in the free coaching sessions this year to mark the 20th Games.”
To be eligible for Team Spelthorne, you must either live or go to school in Spelthorne and if you already play a sport, you must be below county standard.
Register online from Wednesday 2 March at www.spelthorne.gov.uk/surreyyouthgames to guarantee your place. Each sport has limited spaces and places are given on a first come first served basis. Please visit the website for a full list of sports, coaching timetable and eligibility criteria.
